Hi i have one myself,had the same problem with wheels. Ford alloy wheel paint is always shite (too thin). Had mine powder coated in gloss black,looks the business but i think colour is limited to black white or grey in powder coat,its 3 times stronger than paint though! I used a company called The Wheel Specialists,the have depo's all over UK and did fantastic job with mine. You'll find them on internet easy enough,it only took a day to do all four wheels plus centre caps too! Cost me £235. Good luck. See photo.........

Powdercoating still chips easy especially on roads that aren't the best.
Don't know if your roads are beautiful if they aren't i'd just do it yourself. Because if you pay alot to have them powdercoated you will be kicking your self in the arse as you guys say. Because it's a nightmare to have them redone just for a little spot.
I just sanded prepped primed, and painted then layed an automotive clear coat over my wheels to protect them from rocks and such and have had them black for about 5 months now. They have been through hell and back and show little marks and maybe one or two chips in the paint.
